Fireworks are definitely flying at the G7 and I’m guessing there are a lot of attendees that are wishing they never laid eyes on our “America First” POTUS. Justin Trudeau is probably at the top of that list. And if Canada doesn’t fall into line over tariffs, things are going to get a little more tense pretty quick.

I can’t help but feel that today might have been just a little bit fun, for Trump.

CNN: President Donald Trump on Saturday accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making “false statements” and said that the US will not endorse a G7 communique.

 

Seriously? We are paying 270% tariffs on dairy? Thanks POTUS! Go tariffs! Go Trump!

Shortly after Trudeau said that he was “happy to announce that we have released a joint communique by all seven countries” indicating that the US had signed on, Trump announced the US would reverse its decision and not sign on to the statement after all. The group of seven nations that make up the G7 are Canada, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Japan and Italy.

And this statement by Trudeau conjures an image of a childish temper tantrum.

Trudeau said Saturday during a news conference that Canada will “move forward with retaliatory measures” on July 1 in response to the Trump administration’s decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico.

“I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do,” Trudeau said. “Canadians, we’re polite, we’re reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around.

But the greatest response came, once again, from our president!

“It’s going to change,” he said. “Tariffs will come way down. We’re like the piggy bank that everybody is robbing and that ends.”

Yep, this is just the beginning of turning things around. No longer will America be pushed around by the world.
